made in the last two news tremendous economic progress. it tripled the size of its economy, crippled the standard of living of ordinary people, in spite of this progress, we see this demonstration. why? because people don't want just bread-and-butter, they want freedom. they want human rights, civic rights, democracy, rule of law. they want to take part in the decisionmaking, whether it is the future of the party in istanbul or the future of their country. for mr. erdogan, in my view, a wake-up call. therapy can go on the way to work, more democracy, on the way to europe, or turkey can slip into the politics situation that is developing in the middle east. therapy needs a new constitution not because of the e.u. but because of the democracy and development of turkish society and turkish economy. in this process of creating a new constitution not only the ruling party but the opposition should be included. the civil society, the journalists, the lawyers, everybody who is willing to take part and in this process, needs our help because if we let this not only for us, very important cou

economy's going to try to do a lot of things, which is one open up our doors to people, for example, in harlem which is right around the corner from me. so it would be nice to have some of these great young athletes instead of playing basketball, for example, or football, that they choose tennis. and that there's a means and a ways possibly that they could get themselves from doing something possibly not good to possibly doing something great for their country. >> rose: and one of the great golf writers around, jaime diaz, talks about the u.s. open at marion. >> and tiger used to do it better than anyone. just like jordan would do it at the end of the game. that was allure and tiger had that allure. he still has it but he's been fighting himself to some extent and he hasn't been able to do it at a major and that's the ult mast test and that's the thing he lived for. so the drama now is seeing if he can do that again. that's what people are watching and wondering. >> rose: and some rules for life and management from donald rumsfeld. he calls it "rumsfeld's rules." >> and the greatest

americans still want to continue the discussion on the economy but the conversation was disrupted by a dramatic turn of events in syria. the obama administration announced on thursday that they'll begin to arm the syrian rebelsful the about face came after confirmation that the embattled president bashar al assad has used chemical weapons against his own people. we learned more about the carnage as the u.n. announced more than 90,000 men, women and children have died in the 2-year-old conflict. a staggering loss of life but one that so far has not swayed the american people that this is a war worth fighting. a recent nbc "wall street journal" poll showed the american public is still extremely hesitant to intervene in the conflict. with nearly one in four americans saying, we should satisfy no action at all. asked to pick a response to stop the killing of civilians in syria, just 15% say they favor u.s. military action and only 11% want to provide arms to the opposition. by comparison, the pluralality of responses preferred to provide only humanitarian assistance and 24% believe the u.s

programs. when the economy improved, we always saw those levels retreat and go back down. this time it is not happening. no entitlements. do you think there is a political motive here with the far left which now control the white house and most of congress that they are actively trying to lock people into this government dependency to lock in a permanent democratic majority? >> i think that conclusion can be easily reached. because for one thing, to your point about usually when we see an economy move beyond the recession, we see these programs recede with them. we've seen almost a million additional households on food stamps in the course of the past year. that is unheard of, unthinkable. in terms of a dependency motive for this administration for the left that is represented by the democratic party in washington, i think that's entirely possible. but as troubling is that the right, the republican party has not come up with intelligence sustainable, effective solutions in response to what they see as the motivation and the program of this president. >> that's a huge problem. this i

president brought the economy back from the brink through a stimulus program, a bailout of the american auto industry, strengthening financial reform and creating a dedicated government bureau to protect consumers. changing the composition of the supreme court by appointing two impressive women. and of course the largest progressive domestic policy to expand our social safety net in a generation, the affordable care act. for obama supporters accustom to all those policy successes, so far the second term may seem like it's off to a slow start but i think that changed this week. the president just took a crucial step towards the first big win of the second term on tuesday. advocates for immigration reform broke an attempted filfilibuste. now nothing should stop the senate for an up-or-down vote for landmarking legislation that would provide the u.s.'s first comprehensive immigration reform in almost three decades. if that happens, president obama will become the first president to make a lasting mark on immigration policy that clears away the citizenship for undocumented immigran
